Natchez teams for recycling grants

NATCHEZ —

NATCHEZ, Miss. (AP) — Natchez is partnering with Brookhaven and possibly another local government to apply for a grant to start a regional recycling initiative.

Natchez Community Development Director James Johnston tells The Natchez Democrat (http://bit.ly/1dCFLB3) Natchez, Brookhaven and possibly Wilkinson County will apply for funding from the Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality's Regional Recycling Cooperative Grants Program.

Johnston says the grant would help pay for educational and marketing efforts to educate residents of participating communities on recycling, as well as transportation and equipment.

The total available funding is $1 million, with the maximum single award limited to $400,000.

The local governments are partnering with businesses and organizations for in-kind contributions that Johnston said total approximately $100,000.
